Writer Michael West and director Muireann Ahern have teamed up to produce an entirely new and original take on Mary Shelley’s gothic horror, Frankenstein.

In this new telling, Victor Frankenstein is a gene-splicing molecular biologist who is aiming to create life using his own DNA material. Unsurprisingly, everything has gone disastrously wrong, and Dr. Frankenstein is trying to clear his own name and set the record straight from the holding cell we find him in.

This modern mutation on the classic tale takes Frankenstein 200 years forward in time without losing any of its potency or poignancy.
